Beautiful, but use to be better.

The gardens are still as pretty as ever, but the animal area is looking run down, and the cows look really sad.

We visited Maymont on a quiet weekday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. History of the home and the Dooleys was very interesting, and the interiors are a visual treat. We look forward to returning on a sunny spring day to enjoy the gardens.

Maymont is certainly an interesting place cause it has an array of things to do and they don't really like tie together that well. Just kinda random but in a fun way. Has gardens, animals, touring the mansion and much more. Definite recommend the Japanese gardens area! It was really cool.

Picnics, peaceful walks, scavenger hunts with the kids, the wildlife viewing, rolling down the hills, many areas are stroller friendly. The mansion tour is fun. They offer so much to the community. We enjoy the wreath making classes each year and also Herbs Galore. Every season displays such beauty throughout the park,

It was very pretty and had animals for the children and I believe they were able to pet the animals. It has some beautiful flower gardens.

Didn't know what to expect here and was pleasantly surprised. Christmas decorations in December add a big bonus. Informative tour explains the life of the wealthy in the Gilded Age. Probably more interesting for adults than kids.

I took my nephews here and they enjoyed the Aviary, the barn/farm animal exhibit, the buffaloes, and the inside-the building animals.

Lots of space to walk around///the house is stunning as are the grounds. Parking can be a challenge but it is worth it. Very peaceful area.

I was feeling stressed from something that happened on my job..so my husband decided to take me here... the walk, animals, and scenery were so relaxing, I forgot what I was upset about. Now I take that every time I'm upset or just want to walk.. I take my grandchildren here off ten also.

I was here twice. I think, the Maymont is the best park from all Richmond's parks. The park contains the beautiful Japanese Garden, Italian part, Waterfall, Zoo and huge green glades. This place will be interesting for adults and children.
